FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

We all love our country and i truly believe that we all are proud about it as well. But there are moments when we feel shameful to be part of this whole lot crowd. We all must have read and heard a lot about this whole commotion raised about this KHUSBOO issue and her views. Come on guys, this is a free country and anyone is free enough to voice her/his opinions unless and until it hurts some individual.

We Indians gave KAMASUTRA to this world. We are the second most populous country on earth. And still talking SEX is taboo in our country. You, I and the ones standing outside her house with the broomsticks are products of harmony of a man and women and i believe that we didn’t fall from trees. Khuswanth Singh is correct. We Indians are the biggest Hypocrites in the whole universe..possibly solar system. The most painful thing is the mileage given by the press to this whole issue and making a mount out of molehill. I presume that most of you reading this article have friends in your opposite sex and have a nice relationship with them as well.

Today’s youth I believe, know the boundaries in relationships and barring a few odd people everyone is conscious of their limits. Had a male told the same about pre-marital sex he would have been termed as bold, visionary and ahead of his times. And when the same is uttered by a woman, all hell breaks loose and there is a cloud of doubt on her character. Why double standards? Are people stupid enough to realize that this whole issue has been blown out of proportions by opportunists to make their presence felt in the society? Ultimately pre-marital sex is every person's individual interest and opinion, but what’s wrong in saying that it can be practiced safely.

Sadly and truly, Freedom of Expression exists only in the Airtel ads in our country :-(

Very very true, Iam really happy that a guy has come up witha post on this, It was not only media but also politics played by a director Thangar bachan . Read The Hindu Sunday (27.11.05) magazine. Thanks harish for writing such a nice post and also commenting on mine.

thats a nice post harish, with all truth. afterall freedom of expression is not just limited to these politacal leaders, who doesn't even remember what they say during election times, and who doesn't bother about their usage of words while criticizing fellow politicians...

The problem with our society is that people just will not appreciate a good thought. All they think off is how to garner atttention to themselves and their bigoted views which even they dont follow.
